TaylorMade: New Tour Preferred line?

By Jonathan Wall, PGATOUR.COM Equipment Insider

LAS VEGAS -- TaylorMade hasn't released a Tour Preferred iron line since 2011, but based on photos that were just posted to the company's Tour Diaries blog, that's about to change in the near future.

The photos don't offer a lot of insight into the upcoming line -- the last one included CB, MB and MC -- except that there will be a MB (muscleback) model and the line will include the new 3-millimeter Speed Pocket that's currently in the sole of SpeedBlade irons.

The updated Speed Pocket in SpeedBlades is marginally wider and extends to the heel and toe areas of the sole. By expanding the Speed Pocket and making it larger, TaylorMade engineers were able to make the face flex more effectively at impact, increasing the sweet spot across the face of the club.

TaylorMade's new Speed Pocket has been at the forefront of a number of recent releases, including SLDR fairway and rescue clubs, the new JetSpeed woods line and SpeedBlades.
